On My Reading List

#8. Photography- ‘Mothers & Daughters‘ An Exploration In Photographs With Essays By Tillie Olsen And Estelle Jussim, 1987.

“…It is at once the most basic and most mysterious of relationships: mothers beget, nourish, and ultimately are succeeded by their daughters. Therein lies the true thread of human continuity…”

Inspired By…

…’Girls Standing On Lawns‘ by Maira Kalman And Daniel Handler, 2014.

Maira Kalman and Daniel Handler sifted through MoMA‘s archive of old snapshots and found a lot them had to do with the same theme- girls on lawns waiting for a family member or friend to take their picture. So, they selected some favorites and got busy- Kalman with her illustrations and Handler with his prose to accompany them.

For me… I got busy photographing Kayla sitting on the lawn. :)
